A new life


A few inches under these hands is a little beating heart. It's hard to imagine that I will have a son in about a month. It's also hard to imagine that the responsibility of being the baby's father will fall on my shoulders. I'm in a state of amazement and awe right now, it's the last month - the last month where my time and energy revolves around just me and my wife.
When we went up to the altar to take communion this morning, the man who served us communion looked at us both with a smile and said "the body of Christ, broken for all three of you."

Yeah, I took that picture yesterday. I think if we all follow Luke's lead we should all be just fine. We should all have lovely well-adjusted children who say bad words at Chipotle.

No, seriously, I think Luke and Galadriel have about the best balance in the world and we really admire the way they bring up their kids. That's why it's so neat to be around their kids. We are certainly taking note!
